The Princeton Review ranks NUS Business School among the world's best for MBA programme

17 October 2011

The Princeton Review's The Best 294 Business Schools: 2012 Edition has placed the NUS Business School's MBA programme among the top 10 in its ranking of non-US business schools. It is the only business school in Singapore to make this list of Best Business Schools (International).

Dean and Stephen Riady Distinguished Professor of NUS Business School Prof Bernard Yeung said: "We are honoured to be featured alongside the 10 best business schools outside the US. The feature recognises our international standing as a preferred MBA programme of choice among applicants and as Asia's Global Business School. We will continue to work hard at helping our students get the most value out of their time at the school."

Concurring, Vice Dean of Graduate Studies of the School Assoc Prof Susanna Leong said that The Princeton Review is a well-read resource for prospective MBA students. "To be listed as a preferred business school is a testament to the NUS Business School's academic excellence," she said.

The Princeton Review, an education services company, obtained information through a survey of more than 19,000 students at 294 business schools. Data was also gathered from school administrators.

Explaining the ranking system, Senior Vice President and Publisher of The Princeton Review Robert Franek said: "We produce rankings in multiple categories and comprehensive profiles of the schools to give applicants a substantive base to decide which law or business school will be uniquely best for them."

The Princeton Review does not rank the business schools in a single hierarchical list. It has 11 lists of the top 10 business schools in categories which cover aspects such as Best Classroom Experience and Best Career Prospects.

The Princeton Review ranking came after the Forbes ranking of two-year MBA programmes outside the United States published in August 2011, where NUS Business School emerged 1st among business schools in Asian universities and 4th internationally.
